About a year and a half ago, I asked this net for info on my mating
of a white and an albino, getting dark and white offspring. I got a
lot of info on this mating. This biggest "surprise" was that I had
gotten whites and not all dark. Although I gave up a lot of larevae,
to Roy Tassava and others, I did keep some--3 white and 3 dark.
Just mated two darks a couple weeks ago. The larvae are big enough
now that I can see I have darks, lighter ones with black eyes
(white, I assume) and lighter ones with light eyes (albinos, I
I am not a genetics-type but I think this is sort of interesting.
Right now, the larvae are all in one larger container so I don't have
any ratios, etc. Will look at that this weekend when I plan to put
them in smaller bowls (8" culture dishes from Carolina).
